The Creation of Mario by TsaoShin The Creation of Mario by TsaoShin
Shigeru Miyamoto creates Mario in a parody of Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" from the Sistine Chapel.

Oh boy! What a journey on this drawing. I was joking with my best friend around about doing a drawing like this and after a few ideas of doing classic game characters in well known masterpieces, we came up with this crazy idea.

I know there's quite a few inaccurate attributions to Miyamoto on some of the characters represented here but I really wanted him to be surrounded by some of Nintendo's finest :iconhurrhurrplz:.

I'm aware that I'm also missing some females like Pauline from the original Donkey Kong but it was getting a bit crowded in that little swarm so I kept it limited to some of the more recognizable characters.

From left to right: Mario, Midna, Shigeru Miyamoto, Daisy, Princess Peach, Toadette, Zelda and Birdo. Lower row: Rosalina and Samus.

The leaf is from Super Mario Bros. 3. It's the one that grants you the raccoon tail.

Had a lot of fun drawing this one out! Created in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

From the suggester:
"I find this to be very hilarious. The shading, the concept, and the fact that it will cause stomach ruptures worldwide is enough to make me want to share this with everyone." ( Suggested by Jace-Z and Featured by rydi1689 )

Not sure that any of my students knows what Myamoto looks like... But I'm sure that I'll have to explain a lot of things to my co-workers tommorow for correcting session (I'm 34 but probably the younger ).

Is there something more about this creation you want to share ?

Thanks a lot.

I love you work (your Mufasa is stunning !) but I really didn't think i'd  see it on Baccalaureat. "les temps changent"

Thank you! I was surprised to find it was in the Baccalaureat! I never expected this particular piece to find it's way into an education setting.
